  • KNIFE SKILLS: CHOP LIKE A PRO (SOLD OUT)

    March 31, 2017 6:00 PM

    Our Knife Skills class has become so popular that I have finally decided to offer them more often. In this class, everyone will have their own station and their own set of sharp knives. Sharp is the key word here…we’ll teach you how to sharpen and maintain your knives at home. You’ll learn how to better handle a chefs knife, a pairing knife and a boning knife. We’ll butcher whole fish and poultry too. No more $9.99 a pound for a chicken breast…We’re going to chop, slice, dice and more for four hours. You’ll work with a wide variety of ingredients. And we’ll prepare a nice dinner with all of our practice cuts. This class is for all levels.

  • JORDAN’S KITCHEN FAVORITES (SOLD OUT)

    April 7, 2017 6:00 PM

    This is our first Jordan’s Kitchen favorites class in a while. In this class we will naturally make four of my favorite seasonal dishes. I think every home cook should know how to make flat breads, working with dough can really be intimidating but it doesn’t have to be. This dish is perfect for when you have some friends coming over and some great spring vegetables around from the farmer’s market. Who doesn’t love meatballs? This is a Moroccan version with lamb and a fabulous yogurt dipping sauce that goes perfectly with the spices in the meatballs. For some reason most cooks struggle with being able to cook chicken, it really is delicious once you get a crispy skin and stop over cooking it. We’ll use the whole chicken and cook it a few ways so everyone comes away confident with some new techniques to ensure moist, juicy chicken from now one. And for dessert, the perfect spring pairing of lemon, strawberry and rhubarb. You’re going to love this class menu!

  • JORDAN’S KITCHEN DATE NIGHT

    April 28, 2017 6:00 PM

    Jordan’s Kitchen Date Night is back and definitely one of the most fun and original things to do in the Bay Area with your food and wine loving sweetie. Come spend the evening cooking, eating and drinking with us and a few other couples. You’ll have a blast, learn a bunch and make food that tastes better then you ever imagined. This is a great spring menu and we’ll be praying that the seasons first cherries are juicy and delicious for one of my favorite desserts. You’ll be cooking this menu together for months to come!

  • FARM TO TABLE

    May 5, 2017 6:00 PM

    This menu reflects all that is amazing about spring time in California. You can go to any farmer’s market this time of year and come home with a bag filled with everything delicious. Then all you have to do is set aside some time to transform these perfect ingredients into a fabulous meal. And we’ll do just that! From young fava beans and leaves to green garlic, asparagus, baby chokes and cherries. Fresh shelled peas are my favorite of all. This is a class not to be missed. BTW, it is the same menu as the Date Night class the week before but we like it so much, we did not want to limit it to couples

Students say…

“This is a real cooking class – everyone has their own station, it’s conducted in a commercial kitchen in San Francisco and you get real hands on experience and training.”

“Wow, what a spectacular experience. I was expecting a high-level overview of what we would be cooking plus some hands-on stuff, but over the course of four hours Jordan imparts such a deep set of cooking skills and knowledge that I feel that I learned more here than I had in the last four years. Jordan’s ability to handle a group of total strangers working with sharp knives and boiling pots and pans is awe-inspiring.”
